This exquisite Paraiba Tourmaline pendant is an artful and elegant choice. It features a striking Paraiba tourmaline with bright neon and green hue. The vivid shade makes it surpass all other shades available naturally in the tourmaline family and as well as in other gemstone groups. Its unique shade distinguishes it from the family of tourmalines. Paraiba gemstones are usually heated and the shade appears drastically different upon heat treatment. The enhancement occurs in the temperature range of 500 to 600 degree Celsius. Tourmaline is rich in manganese and copper and the colour of the gemstone can easily by modified from dark blue, violet and purple to turquoise shade. The degree to which the colour changes is strongly dependent on the trace elements present in the gemstone. It is also strongly influence by the absorption spectra of the precursor metal. The estimated copper to manganese ratios and the measured absorption spectra help in determining whether the tourmaline gemstone is eligible for heat treatment or not.
